    I saw this movie when I was a child. It was on those days another Lassie movie. TCM showed this movie last week, but now it brought me too many flash backs from the Vietnam War. I served with the Army in Vietnam with Delta Devils, D 2/12 Inf White Warriors, 25th. inf Division.I was a 19 year old kid when I was drafted from Puerto Rico. This was the first time I abandoned my parents and my family. I was forced to learn to kill people. At the age of 22, I had killed thousands of Vietnamese soldiers and/or Vietcong units. I was wounded three times. I was awarded three Purple Hearts, One Bronze Star with "V" Device for VALOR. Two Army Commendation Medal and the Combat Infantry Badge. I came back home, but many of my friends and comrades loss their lives. I gave some, but the others gave all. I came back with physical and mental scars, many nightmares of what I have done to others in battle. On or about the year 2000, The Veterans Administration came with a name for a mental disorders on Combat Wounded Heroes. The V.A. Named it Post Traumatic Syndrome Disorder (PTSD).Bill (Lassie), was forced, (same as all young Americans), to join the Army, and taken him away from Cathie. Bill almost lost his life in battle and he was also awarded with the Purple Heart Medal and another medal for his courage. When Bill ended his time in service, Bill was sick with the PTSD. Bill ended in a Court Room accused of several felonies, (same as soldiers from war scenarios). Bill had a mental disorder that almost he loose his trial in the Court Room. A very compassionate lawyer convinced the judge and the Parroquians to set Bill free. (Many Veterans are still filing claims to Veterans Affairs for PTSD unfruitfully). I give this movie a 5 Stars review.

    After a slow start - the dog, Bill, gets chummy with other animals and birds - the film, with the arrival of young Elizabeth Taylor, blossoms into a touching story of a girl, who sees potential in a collie - as a sheep dog - and, then, when she is proven right, gets to keep him in the bosom of her family. Then, when Bill is hit by a truck and taken to an animal hospital and then "drafted" into military service - all without Taylor's knowledge - the film becomes quite dramatic and Lassie, as Bill, gives quite a strong performance. The ending, in which Taylor and Lassie are re-united - finally and forever - is both dramatic and touching. And I'd like to say that Selena Royale, Catherine MacLeod and David Holt were just fine as Taylor's mother, sister and brother, respectively.
